IT has taken Kangaroo Flat’s Alex Cooper just one game to complete one of cricket’s most sought-after achievements – a hat-trick.

Playing in his first game for Kangaroo Flat’s under-14B team last Saturday, Alex achieved a hat-trick in his first over playing against Bendigo’s new all-girls team.

And the 13-year-old did so by getting all three of his wickets bowled, describing the experience as “very exciting”.

Alex also made 16 n.o. with the bat.
